Product Description

 

 

One of the most memorable sights of Manipur is the dance of the region performed amid complicated rituals and in a language of unrecognizable nasat twang and sounds. The stiff red, green and gold spangled skirts shimmering under the gossamer gold veils and the plaintive singing style of the raas is perhaps the instant connection when Manipuri classical dance is mentioned.
